“Creating a Bird and Wildlife Friendly Landscape with Florida Native Plants”
Dara Dobson has been a Walton County Master Gardener since 2002. She has a deep love for native plants and wildflowers, she is a strong advocate for using native plants in our landscapes to support our insect pollinators, birds and wildlife. She is a member of the Florida Native Plant Society, the Wildflower Foundation and Audubon. Dara and her husband Lloyd own and operate 7 Pines Native Plant Nursery in DeFuniak Springs. The nursery is a labor of love, it centers around helping the public make good choices for the environment and having the plant species available to obtain here in north Florida.
